Donald Trump lies at debate about his ‘sex tape’ tweet on former beauty queen
Donald Trump was asked during the debate about whether he has the right temperament to be president after he went on Twitter to inveigh against a former Miss Universe.
The Republican candidate denied he told people to look for a sex tape from the former beauty queen, a video that doesn’t seem to exist.
But he did say exactly that.
Pressed more about his controversial comments on Twitter, Trump defended himself.
“Tweeting happens to be a modern-day form of communication,” he said.
Trump added, “I’m not un-proud of it, to be honest with you.”
